Family Pictures


Better late than never, right?!

Thanksgiving weekend we had Addi come on over for our first family picture as a family of four. Ethan had been battling a yucky cold but we needed to get our pictures taken. The first half was a little rough as Ethan looks so tired and miserable. However after the Tylenol kicked in he was a happy toddler. Addi got some great shots of both the kids. These pictures make my heart melt. Enjoy!

Christmas 2009






Christmas Eve we celebrated with my family at Amy's house this year. We enjoyed prime rib, ham and lots of other goodies. We had a special guest, Santa!!! The kids were amazed by Santa's arrival and it was fun to see there eyes light up. It was a great evening.

Christmas Morning our kids opened gifts at our house. Of course Ella needed help but she loved her new rattles and books. Ethan was awesome to watch. He ripped open the gifts and wanted to investigate each one before moving onto the next. What great memories we have made!

Christmas afternoon we headed over to Corey's family for the day. We had yummy ham, lasagna and lots of good sides. The kids had a great afternoon playing and enjoying the others company. During gift time the three youngest girls decided to nap- it was very sweet.
Sad to see 2009 come to an end but can not wait to see what God has instore for us in 2010!

Ella 3 month pictures




Last Saturday we ventured out despite lots of lake effect snow to get Ella's three month pictures taken. I think they turned out great and am surprised how different Ethan and Ella look. For the past few weeks I have thought they look alike but these pictures prove otherwise. There are some similarities but she has those cheeks that Ethan did not have. Gotta love that smile!
